Unable to install New CentOS 7.3-1611


Hi

I'm trying to install new CentOS 7.3-1611. I first tried it on my PC, and when it failed, I thought there's some problem with my partition. So then I tried on VirtualBox - Same error (Screenshot 3).

The Error is:
Quote:
/boot file system cannot be of type lvmlv
Following is my partition scheme (Screenshot 1 and 2) :
Partition Type: GPT
  1. Boot => /dev/sda1 -> 190MiB -> /boot/efi
  2. Root => /dev/cl/rot -> 6GiB -> /
  3. Var => /dev/cl/var -> 10GiB -> /var
  4. Audit => /dev/cl/adt -> 500MiB -> /var/log/audit
  5. Temp => /dev/cl/tmp -> 3GiB -> /tmp
  6. Swap => /dev/cl/swp -> 2GiB -> swap
  7. Home => /dev/cl/hom -> 5GiB -> /home

In earlier versions of CentOS (7.2), When 'Done' is clicked twice, the installation would continue. But in this version, The installation cannot continue (screenshot 4).

I'm struck. Don't know where I am wrong. Please help.

Thank you

The error shown in 03.png might be the cause.

Boot must not be on a lvm partition.

No its not a lvm volume. Its a standard /dev/sda1 partition. Rest are LVM volumes. Screenshot 2.

The error shown by the installer displays: /boot is on a lvm partition.

Reset all, delete everything on the hard drive, then set up your partitions again. Might be a little big buggy. Or delete the /boot partition and set it up as standard again.

@Keruskerfuerst and @vincix, thank you very much. Like you advised I rechecked and figured it where I was doing wrong.

In previous versions of CentOS, I had, in its simple partition configuration, /boot/efi standard partition and / LVM volume. The /boot/efi would sit on /boot directory with is in LVM / volume. Even though anaconda complained, clicking 'Done' two times would continue installation.

In CentOS 7.3-1661 though, its adamant and refused to continue till the /boot partition is made of standard type and not an LVM one. So I created three partitions -
  1. /boot -> 1GiB - xfs standard partition
  2. /boot/efi -> 500Mib -> efi standard partition
  3. /dev/vg/root -> 10GiB -> xfs LVM volume

Now installation was smooth as cream.

Thank you very much.
